How about living with three nationalities?

How about living with three nationalities?

I am not English, but French. I do not celebrate the Battle of Agincourt, but the victory of Orleans. At school, I was good at German, not at English. I support Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Italy as long as England does not win the Six Nations Championship. Yet I am bound to my best enemy […]

How I went from business idea to reality in 3 months – guest post

In July this year I took my children camping in the Yorkshire Dales. As I sat gazing at the campfire with a gorgeous sunset adding touches of pink to the sky, I mulled over my work situation. I was at a crossroads. Like many expats, I had been forced down the self-employment route due to […]
